African mud cloths are one of my favorite textiles to use in a home. They are so versatile! In addition they are a great way to add layers of texture and bohemian chic to beautify your home’s decor. African mud cloth in arrow, line and dot pattern. White cotton, medium weight. Perfect to hang on a wall, use as a floor mat or use as a throw. 51″ x 39″
One of the many things that make traditional mud cloths special is that each cloth has a story to tell. Each of the symbols on the cloth reveals something secret about the intended meaning which is passed down from mother to daughter that aren’t meant to be understood by the uninitiated. It is the language of the community so there will always be just a little bit of mystery for the outsider.
